Tennessee Education Lottery Educator of the Week: Stacey Lockhart

DRESDEN, Tenn. — Stacey Lockhart started her career in business, but after having children, the Dresden high school teacher went back to her childhood dream.

“I had traveled a lot with my previous job and I didn’t want to do that a lot more, and I went back to what I originally wanted to be when I grew up and that was a teacher,” said Lockhart.

With her background in business, Lockhart uses her previous experience to relate to her students in business communications.

“In the class that I’m in right now we’re doing virtual enterprise, and they’re setting up their own virtual business and they’re starting there own business from the ground,” said Lockhart.

Lockhart will now be eligible for the statewide Tennessee Education Lottery Educator of the Month award. Starting in May, to vote for her or any of the other nominees, visit www.seehowitaddsup.com.
